“Total” by Violeta Mayoral at Creació i Museus 2024

Hangar collaborates with the Castell de Montjuïc in Creació i Museus 2024, a program driven by ICUB that is part of the Grec Festival, bringing together resident artists from the city’s creative factories with museums and cultural institutions in Barcelona. For this edition, long-term resident artist Violeta Mayoral will present the acoustic action Total, a new production between Hangar and Castell de Montjuïc that can be visited on June 30 at 11 am and 12 pm.

Total, by Violeta Mayoral

On 30 June 2019 at 11.00, the wind was blowing from the east at a speed of 19 km/h at Montjuïc Castle. In 2020, it was calm at the same time. In 2021, it came from the south-west and its speed did not reach 7 km/h. In 2022 and 2023 it was calm again. Jeroni tells me that they can only predict what will happen a week in advance, and that if the wind doesn’t blow on 30 June 2024, we will always have the breeze. I explain to the musicians that the volume will depend on whether the wind moves the sound closer or further away and that, although there is a chance that no one will hear it, everything will be prepared for it to be heard.
